Creative West Hill in King George’s Park

October 2018

London artists Emily Tracy was commissioned by Tideway to create an eye-catching art installation whilst the Thames Tideway Tunnel is under construction. The art project called ‘Through Kaleidoscope Eyes’ was created after a series on workshops in November 2017 involving pupils from West Hill, children from West Hill in the Park and local residents. It shows images of King George’s Park reimagined, using collages of things that people value in the park. They tried to include the diversity of activity in the park as well as using historical references. We think the end result is amazing.
